Final Fantasy 25th Anniversary Event:
Final Fantasy XIV Special Show

September 1st, 2012 by Tony Garsow

We’re just a few minutes away from the start of the Final Fantasy XIV presentation at the Final Fantasy 25th Anniversary Event! For those of you with a NicoNico account, you can watch the stream here — but for those of you who don’t we’ll be covering the step by step details in this post like we did with the XIII New Developments presentation.

So without further adieu ado (lol), we’ll start things off here:

+ We start with a new trailer showing off combat and exploration in the new Eorzea. The game’s graphic engine has been completely redone. The party at the end of the trailer uses the new Limit Break system to down a boss.

+ Yoshi-P, director and producer, takes the stage to a round of applause. Assistant director is on stage briefly to talk about the new version. Yoshihisa Hashimoto is introduced, he helped direct XIV’s new’s graphics engine and works on the new Luminous engine as well.

+ The area from the Gamescom demo is being shown. The user interface has been rebuilt. You can customize it to your liking — resize any part of it. Drag and drop items — very streamlined.

+ Showing a bit of the Agni’s Philosophy demo — but back to FFXIV, characters are riding chocobos. Mounted combat will come to Eorzea, and you’ll be able to fight on chocoboback.

+ A lot of quest content will appear in A Realm Reborn, and a feature they’re implementing is “level sync” which will allow you to lower your level to match a friend’s so that you can experience the same content together and feel like you’re making progress experience-wise.

+ Environments in zones look very detailed and give the game a lived-in personality.

+ Some banter about voicing characters in FFXIV — Akio Ohtsuka is involved. He voiced Gabranth in FFXII, and will play Gaius van Baelsar in FFXIV. He thought he was playing a Judge again by the similar armor. *Laughter*

+ Showing off some combat now. Weaponskills rely more on cooldowns than TP now. That system has been reworked.

+ New class Arcanist is being shown. Carbuncle is the Arcanist’s familiar. Disciple of Magic class. They are able to apply DoTs (Damage over Time abilities) and debuff enemies.

+ New Class Summoner is being shown. You spec into this like a Paladin, Black Mage, with Artifact armor and quests.

+ Cosplayers show off the default outfits each race and gender.

+ “Eorzean Frontiers” Original Soundtrack for Final Fantasy XIV announced. Update: Now available on iTunes!

+ Alpha test phase will begin soon.

+ And that’s a wrap! Stick around, we’ll have some more FFXIV stuff in about an hour.

+ The Final Fantasy XIV Alpha test phase application page has opened! Click here to apply!

    Final Fantasy XIV looks absolutely gorgeous. But thanks everyone for tuning in tonight — I’m gonna get a few hours of sleep!

    So without further “adieu”, I bid you adieu. :)
